The Tri-State area has truly gained a gem of a business this past week. On Wednesday, December 7, 2022, NeuroRestorative celebrated the official grand opening of its newest brain injury rehab space. According to their website, “NeuroRestorative is a leading provider of subacute and post-acute rehabilitation services for people with brain, spinal cord, and medically complex injuries, illnesses and other challenges. In a variety of locations and community-based settings, we offer a continuum of care and rehabilitation options, including specialized services for infants, children, adolescents, Military Service Members and Veterans.”
They offer a full continuum of care that includes residential and day treatment services within home/community support. NeuroRestorative is an organization that is on the forefront of clinical care and rehabilitative programs. Through a time tested approach provided by an exceptional team of medical professionals, they are able to offer a wide range of well rounded, community based programs that provide their patients the best therapeutic care that is customized to their specific and individual needs. Through the programs offered, NeuroRestorative is not only able to integrate work and social experiences that help their patients build necessary life skills but also help them to learn to do things more independently. By accruing the skills necessary for this newfound independence this not only promotes a positive self-esteem but also gives the individuals a chance to actively participate within their communities. NeuroRestorative’s philosophy of combining functional therapies and everyday experiences with in the real world helps to enhance the overall therapeutic gain for all of its program participants.
Karen Biggs, Program Director of NeuroRestorative, shared with us just what being in their program entails, “We have programs in Ashland, Lexington, Louisville, and Paducah. Here in Ashland Kentucky we have a twelve bed residential. So with homes all throughout the community we put have about three people to a house. Each home what we call a life skills trainer. Which is not so much a caregiver but more like a person who coaches them. They help to improve each individual’s life skills and learns about their deficits and teaches them how to cope with them. They will come here during the day, Monday through Friday. We have classrooms where they get the opportunity to work on their physical and cognitive deficits.” In addition to the classrooms, you will find that NeuroRestorative also has a wide range of therapeutic equipment such as diverse types of exercise equipment which includes stairs and a fully stocked kitchen with laundry room. The fully stocked kitchen and laundry room is very beneficial to their patients because this is where they can learn valuable life skills through hands on activity.
